(EICR) Electrical installation condition reports are now a key part of electrical safety, Landlords have the responsibility to ensure that a tenanted property has an electrical installation that is safe to use by its tenants.
By 1st April 2021, you will need to have an EICR performed on all properties with existing tenancies. The new rules will apply to all existing lets. Even if your tenancy is already underway and you have no plans to renew, after 1st April 2021, you will need to have an EICR or you could face fines.
There will be a legal onus on all landlords to have an electrical installation condition report (EICR) in place. They will have to be able to provide this to the tenant, managing agent or local authority generally upon occupancy or within 30 days should they ask.
The government has also laid down the law that all existing tenancies will require a EICR report by April 2021.
TOC Electrics has been assessed by the NICEIC PRS scheme as competent to provide electrical safety inspections in the private rented sector in accordance with the requirements of BS7671 (IET wiring regulations)
